J1 Forth CPU

Imagesource: https://excamera.com/

And a similar project by James Bowman. Similar in so far, that it is a CPU. 😁

However, the J1 Forth CPU has two major advantages. First, you can get it to run directly on a modern FPGA, and second, the instruction set is so similar to Forth that programs written in Forth can be run extremely efficiently.

The 16-bit CPU is so simple that it could hardly be simpler, but still delivers an impressive functionality.

Forth and FPGA's were not on your todo list for the coming year? Maybe this project will change your mind.
